The TEAMMATES mentoring program was started by Tom and Nancy Osborne in 1991 with the vision to help middle school students succeed. At the time, Coach Osborne had 21 of his football players meet with students of Lincoln Public Schools. Twenty one of those students went on to graduate high school and eighteen of the twenty one obtained some form of post secondary education. Since then, TEAMMATES has grown to include 140 different chapters serving more than 8,000 students throughout Nebraska, Wyoming, Iowa and Kansas.
We are proud to announce that Tri County Public Schools has been accepted to be have an official TEAMMATES mentoring program effective during the 2017-2018 school year. Currently, the board of directors is spending their efforts recruiting mentors and raising funds to support the Tri County chapter. If you would like to be a mentor, please contact any individual on the TEAMMATES board of directors (listed below) or Kay Wollenburg the program coordinator. If you would like to donate funds, you can do so on the Tri County webpage. You can also donate electronically. Please look at another tab under the TEAMMATES tab on the website for a list of those instructions. Thank you to all that helped make this opportunity available for our students! TEAMMATES can and WILL do great things for the students of Tri County!
